Strategic investment for sure
With the focus on information security and the need to cater to regulated industries (banking, healthcare etc) this capability was required for hadoop to transition from an R&D platform to a strategic data management platform.

More coming
Data security could not be more top of mind for CIOs right now.  Expect more acquisitions around big data security IP -- and talent -- in the months ahead.

Big Data Needs Security Too
Good move for Cloudera to make a solid investment in security with the purchase of Gazzang.  Like any cloud service, the ability for customers to be able to trust that their provider has the right security controls in place, especially with functions like Big Data which has the potential to contain tons of personal information, it makes sense that Cloudera would opt to purchase a partner with a strong value proposition rather than try to build and manage in-house.  Great news.
